Of course, volatility calculation is very complicated. Volatility calculation of the real issues often rely on computer software.R software is powerful statistical software package which developed rapidly these years.It is a free and open source software and belongs to the GNU system.This paper studies how to use R software programming to implement the calculation of volatility, combined with examples for authentication, and then analyze the result and forercast.The study has shown that R software can quickly and easily complete the calculation of volatility with high accuracy, which has positive sense for the sensitive market.Also,the study demonstrated the usefulness of R software.It has obvious advantages in data processing and computing.
